Released in September 2022, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X was the fastest processor available for the 600-series motherboards with an AM5 socket at the time of the platform’s introduction. This CPU boasts 16 Zen4 cores and a turbo clock speed of 5.7 GHz, which remains the highest frequency for this socket.

AMD is gearing up to launch its next generation, the “Ryzen 9000” series featuring Zen5 cores. This new lineup might be announced in the coming months, potentially being teased at Computex within the next two weeks. Once this news is released, interest in Zen4 CPUs may decrease.

For those looking into the AMD AM5 platform and prioritizing core count, the Ryzen 9 7950X remains a solid option. It’s currently available on Amazon for $471.87, its lowest price since launch.

The Ryzen 9 7950X isn’t AMD’s top gaming CPU, but it currently provides the lowest per-core price in their 7000 series lineup. Among all AM5 Raphael CPUs with Zen4 cores, the 7950X now costs less than $30 per core, making it more affordable per core than the Ryzen 5 7600. The only AM5 processor with a lower per-core price is the newly released Ryzen 5 8400F, but this processor belongs to a different category, with lower cache and significantly lower performance.
